Interested in designing the logo for this year’s Cow Paddy Run race T-shirt?

In 2013, the Cow Paddy Run began hosting a contest to design the race t-shirt. We were so amazed by the entries we received that we have continued the tradition ever since! In 2016, we began partnering with the Community Creative Center (CCC) to make our contest even better by providing FREE workshops for children at which they will have dedicated time and materials to create their entry design! For more information, see below or visit the CCC on the web at

Following the 2017 Cow Paddy Run, we received feedback that the community would also like to see design opportunities at Fayetteville Public Schools. We listened, and we’re now working with teachers and administrators to make this happen. Manage art curriculum at one of our local schools? Contact Melissa at to include the Cow Paddy T-shirt Design Contest as one of your units.

How to Enter:


Check back this fall for information on how to join the FREE workshops at Community Creative Center.

How to Win:

After all designs have been submitted, our cow-crazy crew will pick our top 5-10 designs. Then, we’ll take it to a community vote hosted on our Facebook page! It’s always so hard to pick just one, so we honor our three favorites with prizes! We will announce the winners on our Facebook page in early March before the race.

What You’ll Win:

Each one of our top three favorites will get a FREE entry in this year’s Cow Paddy Run! But that’s not all…

First Place:

$100 CASH for all your hard work and creativity. But more importantly, the first place design will be printed on all the race shirts for this year’s Cow Paddy Run! That means hundreds of people from our community will own a shirt with your artwork! How cool is that?!

Second Place:

$50 CASH for submitting your awesome artwork, and because we just can’t help but share such great art, we will feature it on our website and Facebook page.

Third Place:

$25 CASH because creating a masterpiece is hard work! We already know from years past that it will be so hard to decide between the top three entries, so you better believe we’re sharing the third place work of art on our Facebook page and on our website’s hall of fame.
